Learning from Our History: Lessons at UCSF from the Early AIDS Epidemic
This second lecture of the new UCSF Archives Lecture Series took place on April 16, 2014 in the UCSF Library.
The panel discussion features Drs. John Greenspan, Paul Volberding, Molly Cooke, and Jay Levy to discuss their experiences surrounding the early AIDS epidemic in San Francisco. The four prominent UCSF faculty members engage in a fascinating and candid conversation—with each other and with the audience— to offer their own perspectives on this history.
UCSF played a leading role in the early response to the AIDS epidemic. UCSF faculty and staff helped create important models of care, made many key discoveries into the nature of the disease and its management, and faced the many emotional and ethical burdens at a time when personal safety could not be assured in patient care. Watch the video to hear one-of-a-kind stories from the front lines.
